Things That Irritate Me On Mondays - No 2639

Every Monday morning on the Today programme we have to put up with a brazen advert for Panorama that evening. I would not mind if Panorama was the cutting edge investigative programme of yesteryear. But it is now just soft focus crap along with most other BBC TV news.

On that note, how pathetic is BBC Breakfast now. Total capitulation to dumbed down, 'sit on my sofa' GMTV along with endless packages trailing other BBC shows. The advertising for Strictly Come Dancing each morning when it was on was astonishing. It amazes me that this is allowed for a station that eschews advertising in favour of taxing us poor proles.

How low has the once mighty BBC fallen.
